Secure Display

All handguns on dealers' spaces must be secured by continous security cord or alarm cable or within a glass cases to help resist theft during the show.  The security cord must connect through the weapon and be secured to the table leg, substantial object, or connecting over 8 guns to provide significant deterrent to theft of hand guns.   No loose ends that allow for easy slipping of guns off the end of the cord are permitted.   Guns in open individual display boxes will also be secured by cord.   Guns in closable glass cases do not need to be secured by cord if glass top case is closed or access is reasonably difficult to reach from aisle side.

This security cord is in addition to the plastic tie required to prevent functioning of the gun action.

Muzzle loading firearms must be checked for no load by inserting ramrod into bore. Pre-1900 muzzle loading - non cartridge guns do not need to be tied.   Muzzle loading handguns need to be secured by security cord.

Guns for display only do not need to be tied if they remain in a locked case with no other guns for sale.   The case must remain locked during the show.

Rulings

All decisions of the DACA Show Chairman, DACA Officers or Board to the acceptability of all items offered for sale or display will be final.  First offense results in a warning and banned or inappropriate items being removed from display.  The second offense of displaying banned or inappropriate items will result in the vendor being removed from the show and forfeiting rental fees.

Think Safety.  Check each firearm as you unpack it and every time you handle it during the show.  If you sell a firearm to a customer, it must be secured with a cable tie, even if it is boxed or cased.

Never attempt to load ammunition into any firearm, clip or magazine for any reason.

Magazines are not allowed to remain in any gun for any reason.

Every gun must be rendered safe and un-fireable through the use of a plastic zip tie or other lockable mechanical device (connected and locked).  Plastic zip ties are available from any member of the DACA Safety Committee or at the front desk.

Exhibitors who examine a firearm from a walk-in customer are required to retie the firearm upon its return to the customer.

No carts or dollies are allowed to pass through any glass doors during show hours.   No selling of items from portable carts in the aisles.

Any vendor found with ammunition in a magazine or gun will be subject to immediate removal from the show without refund. The DACA show in Market Hall is a gun free zone per plackard rules posted at the door and all guns must be unloaded and secured.

The DACA reserves the right to demand the removal of any item deemed to be dangerous, illegal, inappropriate, objectionable, or in violation of the local, state or national law or DACA show rules. Failure to abide by show rules, objectionable behavior or failure to cooperate with DACA or Market Hall officials will be grounds for your immediate expulsion from the show with no refund.

All exhibitors are required to read, be familiar with and comply with all published DACA Show Standards as listed.
